Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Wine Journal and Put your Records on

HI Everyone!

Welcome to the second day of the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - where today we are continuing to showcase all the new stamp sets and dies that will be released on Thursday! 

Today for my first project, I am showcasing a Wine Journal Download that will be available from TE and combined it with the Wine A Little stamp set (isn't that a great title?!!). For my project, I created a journal using my Cinch! I haven't made a notebook in awhile and after making this notebook, I remembered how easy it was to make notebooks using my Cinch - can't wait to make more!! So a few things about the Wine Journal - this is something that can be downloaded and then printed out at home. Two journal pages will appear on a sheet of 8.5 x 11 of paper. I cut mine in half at 5.5" and then created a little journal using my Cinch (Trimming the cardboard to 6 x 8"). Here is how it looks :

I love this new stamp set called Wine A Little - Perfect for creating Wine Journals or for creating Thank You cards for hostesses - SO so so so many possibilities!!! I used the Wine Journal sentiment from this stamp set and then stamped some of the vines in pale green ink around it and used then new Label Stacklets 7 to cut it out. I added a little bit of gloss to it for a bit of sheen:
I also used the new to be released Wine and Dine dies to create a little border of wine bottles and glasses at the bottom of the journal. I covered it with gloss and then a layer of stickles. I added a little stamped grape leaf to the top right corner and then some bling and ribbon to the side - Here are more views of the different aspects of the Journal:

And here is what the journal looks like on the inside - Isn't it awesome - just perfect for all those serious wine lovers in your life - perfect and practical and unique gift! I made this for a dear cousin and friend who loves some good wine - the best part is that she makes hand crafted items and I am excited to give her a handcrafted item for Christmas! Check out the inside of the journal:

And here is a side view of the journal. I think I printed about 25 sheets - each sheet containing 2 pages - so this journal has 50 pages! That's alot of wine sampling!! Cheers!

For my second project, I used one of my favorite new stamp sets; Rock My World - OMGOSh SUCH cool sentiments and iamges - I used the Simple Stories- Vintage Bliss to create my card and added musical notes from the Just A Note dies: I added the sentiment from the same Wine A Little stamp set - and NOW, I have her song stuck in my head: "Girl,put your records on, tell me your favorite song....."

"Girl, put your records on - tell me your favorite song..." I absoutely looked making this card - there are so so so many things that changes - that were fun to make. I paper pieced the phonograph and then added some glaze and bling to the sides:
